Top park to visit with your family in Craiova. It has a zoo too, we renovated. Restaurants with Romanian specialties. Very relaxing and it is the second biggest park in Europe according to size. Extraordinary old trees. Top :))
One of the most beautiful natural parks in Romania, and maybe in Europe, too. A must see if you are visiting Craiova. Quick tip: check out the outer alleys, too, for a more quiet and longer walk. And a daily destination for some families with children in Craiova.
